Sadly, Proposition 8, the measure to ban same-sex marriages in California, seems to have passed by a pretty decent margin. It's a sad day for California, and a dark day for gay rights everywhere.

The SF Chronicle says "The flood of dollars that poured into the state from every part of the country made Prop. 8 the most expensive social issue race the nation has ever seen."

That flood of dollars they mention amounted to over $70 million, with the Yes side inching ahead by a few hundred thousand dollars. Either way, it is shocking that the same Californians who voted for Obama would deny homosexuals the right to marriage. Especially considering that Obama supports gay rights and equal right for all humans.

Results in California:

Voted for Barack Obama: 61.3%
Voted for Prop 8: 52.1%

At least here in Humboldt 60% of us voted against this hateful ballot measure. Shame on the other 40% for perpetuating hatred and denying a large group of Californians equal rights based on their sexual orientation. Way to push the human rights movement back a decade or so.

It is sad that a simple majority will be able to ammend the California Constitution to take rights away from loving couples.

Homonegativity is one of the last socially acceptable forms of bigotry. The list is getting shorter. These days it is still somewhat acceptable to be prejudiced against people who practice certain consensual behaviors. Gay love is one of these behaviors. Perhaps someday all citizens will be able to enjoy true liberty.

i knew it, the author is a fag

By Tom Sebourn, on Nov 6, 2008 - 17:52
Wow SamPHX, sounds like you could use a little therapy. Or maybe you just need to chill out and smoke a joint! What a looser!


By Dudson, on Nov 6, 2008 - 23:37

Where does he get off denying us our right to medecine but gay marriage is cool?

Dudson and Sam, for reals? Obviously you are the same person, first off. Second, you think this blog is written by bigots, yet you discriminate against gays? I'm not surprised the author hasn't deleted those comments, because it really shows how bad this county actually is. Here you are, a criminal pot grower, and you're busting out all this extremely hateful stuff about gay people. Wow. This county is full of hate and ugliness, and it doesn't come from this blog, it comes from hateful growers like you!

hate problems

By WIHSHWWi, on Nov 7, 2008 - 7:35
wow samphx, what a sad hateful child you are. you think that supporting equal rights for all humans is bigotry, and you also are a criminal pot grower who no doubt makes a good living without paying income taxes. you are an actual criminal, and you're afraid of gays?

i bet your parents are real proud to have a son who thinks anyone who supports equal rights for all humans without discrimination is homosexual because of it. also i am sure they would be proud that you grow pot in humboldt county and spew hatred anonymously on blogs.

we're all hoping that you get busted by the feds for your crimes, then go to prison where you get butt raped for a few years. you think we are all gay and full of hate for wanting to clean up our community and voting for equal rights? you are pathetic.

poor, poor, pathetic childish grower stuck in a fake world up in a secluded forest where the real america is hidden from you. sad!

good job dudson

By samPHX, on Nov 7, 2008 - 14:27
I wish i was a humboldt grower, that would be the shit to make millions selling pot to faggots in sf. i was going to move to Humboldt but to here that it is full of homeless, tweekers, and faggots, i think Ill stay in the desert. I bet wihshwwi was molested in the butt by his father or uncle his whole life, that is why most people turn gay, Humboldt is a place for marijuana growers! tweekers and fags such as yourself should move to SF and molest little boys. ill smoke sum OG kush for you, marriage is a union betwwen one man and one woman, if you homos want to be have equal rights that is fine, jus dont call it marriage!!!

By Tom Sebourn, on Nov 7, 2008 - 16:16
samPHX, you give a bad name to pot growers.


By marcus, on Nov 7, 2008 - 17:00
Sam makes the whole human race look bad. People like him are actively destroying our nation's sense of community and decency, and corroding our quality of life by spreading hatred and discrimination.

what is the definition of marriage?

By samPHX, on Nov 7, 2008 - 17:33
or do you guys smoke too much of my product to know? and Tom im not a cannabis grower but I know growing plants is not wrong, you all need to check your own morals if you think homosexuality is acceptable! and wihshwwi i bet your two male parents are very proud of you! you support homosexuality and defile marriage, make them proud buddy, im not agaisnt gays but for gays to get married is a disgrace

sam has a point but spews hatred

By SHC Bo$$, on Nov 7, 2008 - 23:22
the author continually mentions his hate towards big time growers who keep this county running yet he says it is ok to be gay. I would rather see Humboldt county full of fellow growers than homosexuals. but sam we must also respect the rights of others to have freedom. the same government who wants to shut down us sucessful millionaire growers is the same government that wants to control peoples lives and tell them they cant be gay.whats next they tell us who to marry? but the authors of this blog really do need to check thier moral standards

Those who have been discriminated against don't seem to hesitate when they get a chance to discriminate against others. So Ironic! So Sad!

Wow! I am jealous. I wish I had some serious cranks throwing out sub-stupid comments on my blog like you have on yours. You have all the luck.

By Authors, on Nov 13, 2008 - 10:10
Haha Joe, no kidding! Lots of hatred in the comments around here. It's a real shame, but if that's how it is then I guess that's how it's gonna be. SamPHX is especially hateful, and we are very much looking forward to more comments from him so that he may further dig himself into a hole of confusion and anger.

Is it moral to pay taxes? SamPHX, do you pay yours as the gays pay theirs?

Anyone who could justify the government telling people what plant they should or should not grow could justify the government gifting rights to people due to what is by all standards a religious ceremony.

As the government does do silly things, it should do the same things for everyone regardless of their sexual preference. I would think it equally ridiculous to deny herbal cannabis therapy to a person due to their sexual preference as it is to deny them marriage rights.

Paying taxes on raw products is questionable to say the least. Why should anyone have to pay taxes on a product which is literally grown, cut, dried, and sold as medicine? I find the taxpayer argument as pointless as the proponents of the "legalize and tax the hell out of cannabis" proposals. Like that $5 per eighth tax initiative... why does the government need to apply a sales tax equal to the production cost?

But to say like the above poster that they'd rather "have growers than homosexuals," guess what? Humboldt County is full of both, deal with it.

Holy c**p,i just stumbled on this blog by mistake and i guess i`m rely stuck between a hard place and a rock,,i grow,,i use,,i`m gay and i`m am going to be married in the spring. Oh and one more thing,does anyone know a good plumber my drain in the tub is clogged again and i don`t know if its stems or hair jell.

Oh wow

By Katrina, on Mar 24, 2009 - 6:55
Geez, you come looking for those who support you and you end up in the middle of a pot vs. gay rights battle. This is sad. While I'm not pro-pot you don't see me ratting my mom out do you? At the same time I see (at school mind) a hundred kids dog on just a few who they 'accuse' of being homosexuals. The funny thing is they have yet to call me on my bisexual ways and are only talking shit.

My point is, maybe you should focus more on the effects the views cause rather than pitting two unrelated issues against each other.

Go Katrina

You are hitting the nail on the head!!!! Why are they comparing apples to tomatoes? WTF. Now I personally don't agree with gays, but I don't disagree with lesbians. I don't know why it is just how I feel. Now Marijuana on the other hand is a subject i do feel strongly AGAINST.
I do have a few friends and family that are either gay or growers, but I don't visit them and I don't allow them to speak to me about their activities. I would have no love loss if the feds stepped in and reversed both laws.
Remember, An armed society is a polite society.

Humbolt State's segragated graduation.

By Dennis Kaufman, on May 25, 2010 - 6:34
A recent Humbolt State student went on a radio station talking about Humbolt State offering black, latino and asian student seperate graduation. Are we allowing those student to have a special privlage because of their race? An e-mail I recieved from an employee stated it was to give those students a more intimate graduation. I think if they can attend the same classes together then why can't they attend the same graduation.

Why do sodomites have to have a recognized institution like marriage? What is the point? Why is it considered bigotry and hatred when someone disagrees with someone else's world view? Sodomy is wrong and I don't care that people say they are in love, so what. There is nothing remotely close to love in the actions of the sodomite. Do not say I am hateful or a bigot because I know sodomy is wrong. Sodomites suffer from at least 5 times the rate of STD's than a heterosexual is subject to, a sodomite has on average 30+ sexual partners than the average of 5-6 for the heterosexual. I don't understand why sodomites are compelled to share their sexual preferences openly with everyone, I'm not compelled to share my sexual preferences with anyone except my wife. Who cares that a
Sodomite enjoys debased, depraved sexual behavior, why tell everyone what you care to do in your sexual life? I don't comprehend the need to elevate their depravity to the station of marriage, it sounds to me that they want the rest of us to legitimize their lifestyle, why? The lifestyle of sodomites is disgusting in the least and dangerous at best.

Sexual depravity of any sort should not be elevated or legitimized by giving the empramator of marriage to it. This is an attack on the family and I mean family in the sense of one man married to one woman and their children. Where will it end, men marrying animals or women marrying trees? These have already happened. If anyone takes the time to study great societies one will quickly realize their collapse was directly attributable to the collapse of the family unit.

I am certain all of this will fall on deaf readers since anyone can justify their own depravity to themselves. By the way saying that I am a bigot or hate monger because I have the common sense to know that sodomy is wrong an that claiming to be born that way is a farce, it is a depraved min that has chosen to submit to their own lusts to sexually gratify themselves in an unnatural way. No one is born gay each and everyone of them made a conscience choice to pursue a dark depraved, immoral illegitimate lifestyle that they try to foist on everyone else with pseudo-science and then putting up a smoke screen of you are an ignorant hateful bigot because you realize sodomy is wrong.

Quit trying to legitimize your sick lifestyle by telling the rest of us you were born that way and you have a right to legitimize that behavior by shrouding it in the institution of marriage.
